Easy Flourless Chocolate Cookies (Crispy & Fragrant)

There are many reasons to make flourless cookies. Whether it is because you are eating keto or following a gluten-free diet, making delicious cookies without flour can help satisfy your sweet tooth.

The rich chocolate flavor of these cookies is reminiscent of the brownies of your childhood. This is a sugar-free recipe you will love and reach for over and over.

What is the Difference Between These Cookies and Regular Chocolate Cookies?

First is the obvious difference: these have no flour. Leaving the flour out helps keep the carb count low. The next difference is they are sugar-free. Using artificial sweetener not only cuts calories and carbs, but they have a lower glycemic index.

These cookies may have a richer taste than other cookies you have had as they are made with unsweetened cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

All of these adjustments to the recipe card help keep them low-carb and keto.

3 Ingredient Chocolatey Cookies Recipe

Looking for a super easy cookie recipe for when you are craving something chewy and sweet?


  • 1/2 cup creamy natural almond butter

  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup (Lakanto is our favorite)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a large bowl, add almond butter and cocoa powder. Stir until cocoa powder is completely incorporated into the almond butter.

  • Add in the syrup. As you continue to stir, you should notice that the spread is beginning to firm up like cookie dough. Stir until the dough is firm enough for you to grab and roll into a ball. Your dough ball may look oily, but this is actually just the syrup.

  • Using a 1 tbsp measuring spoon, measure out dough ball. Place them on the prepared baking sheets spaced 2 inches apart. Roll each dough ball between the palms of your hands. Flatten the dough balls into thick disks using the palm of your hand.

  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until cookies no longer look wet on the surface. The cookie tops will be slightly cracked. Let cookies cool on the baking sheet before removing.

  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
